Headed to Denver later today, so thought I would give this a spin. It's been a while but it's one of my favorites from 1973. Someone once hypothesized that the boys always tried harder when they played "off the beaten track". Not sure if that is accurate but I know what like.

This Miller board (thanks, Charles,) makes Phil sound like he is crouched under my desk thump-thumpin' his way through the Dew. Even Truckin' has that freshness of a song that's only been played a few hundred times, at this point.

For those who are hungry, this has got a giant Playin' sandwich: Mississippi Half Step-> Playin' In The Band-> El Paso-> Playin' In The Band-> Wharf Rat-> Playin' In The Band-> Morning Dew. It even comes with a 1/2 Step app and a Dew-ssert---it's a veritable Lunchable. And, that's just PART of the second set.

Only wish their was an AUD to take with me on the plane. Guess I'll just have to repeatedly listen until it etches its own synapses to get me through the flight.

Me, too. I love AR's tidbits from the Himmies.

To me, the interesting thing is that you find out how provincial you actually are.
Being from Alabama, it takes a while to get used to no fat people in Colorado.
And, though we have heard of them, I have actually seen a Liberal in my travels. We thought we had one here once---turned out he was just retarded, bless his heart.

This is a quick trip to sit with my sister while her hubbie has some unexpected surgery. My kids were upset that I was going to be gone on my birthday and wanted to know why I HAD to go. "Because that's what family does." Perhaps, that was a teaching moment, I dunno, we'll see if it resonates.

The first time I flew into Denver all I thought was " Damn, if I had done this in my teens or twenties, I never would have gone back home to Alabama". - My dad was in the Military so I had no choice about the Alabama part, but did go to high school there. My folks went to Virginia when I was in college, so I only go there to see the in-laws now.
My high school aquaintences turned out to be mostly right wing nut jobs, so your retard - liberal- "bless his heart" comment really made me inhale some diet coke at my desk just now. I am pleased to know another forumite can use the phrase correctly.
I could not find a XXL size shirt from Mtn. Sun brew-pub in Boulder because of the no fat people rule... a good stop if you like a mix of good beer and hippy smell. I went in the winter time and it smelled like good beer and feet. Still, worth the visit.

I love this Brokedown Palace and even with the patch I really prefer the up-tempo TLEO's and this one is nice. I'll be spending the afternoon with this one.

Happy travels.

I love this concert. It's got a great brokedown as well.

The transition into el paso is spectacular!
